APPLE HILL – A wonderful year-round destination, Apple Hill is situated alongside Highway 50 in Placerville and the surrounding region. In addition to apples, the area is known for award-winning ciders, Christmas tree farms, delicious baked goods and family activities, making it a fun destination from mid-summer throughout the end of the year. (Farm hours vary; view an area map and plan your visit before heading out! Some farms are open year-round, and some may not open until the end of November).

Fall is a wonderful time to stock up on wines, holiday pies and baked goods, and to just enjoy all that the season has to offer. The many reds, oranges and golds cast along the hillside with a warm pastry in hand is unmatched bliss. Locals will agree that crowds are thinner, and who can’t get on board with that?

Though you may come for the tasty treats, be sure to bring your camera, as the golden vineyards offer a gorgeous backdrop for holiday photos. Ten Apple Hill Christmas tree farms will open the weekend after Thanksgiving, where you can pick your own Christmas tree, and in many places, even cut it down yourself! So, start planning your visit to this world-renowned area to enjoy all the beauty and baked goods it has to offer.
